Amalfi Coast, Salerno Province
Prepare to be swept away by the beauty of Villa Rondinaia. This spectacular six-bedroom retreat is nestled into the serene cliffs of Ravello, commanding excellent views across the dramatic Amalfi Coast. The exceptional beauty of Villa Rondinaia has not gone unnoticed; owned by the writer Gore Vidal for over thirty years, the villa has hosted countless famous and influential guests - all captivated by the unparalleled panoramic views that stretch before them.

Hidden away in two and a half hectares of beautifully-maintained gardens, you will enjoy complete seclusion during your stay. As you wander among the gardens, you’ll pass by picturesque lemon and olive trees, and cosy pergolas. Shaded pathways lead to sunkissed bathing spots - you’ll find yourself getting lost in the grounds for hours on warm summer days. A glimmering swimming pool beckons you to take a cooling dip. Nearby, a private sauna has everything you need to fully unwind. The dreamy vistas of Villa Rondinaia are matched by its opulent interior; vaulted ceilings, limestone fireplaces, and traditional arched windows add a touch of classic elegance, while plush furnishings offer exceptional comfort throughout. All six bedrooms enjoy private ensuite bathrooms and gorgeous views. Soak up the serenity of Italy’s southern coast from an unforgettable location. A wonderful choice for family holidays or celebrating a special occasion, you will be enchanted by this unique home from the moment you arrive.
